celebrates 20years service to the Braintree community!

We recently celebrated the 20th anniversary since we first opened the doors of our Braintree Funeral Home in Clare Road, off the town centre. A procession of funeral vehicles went through the town centre and finished at our Clare Road Funeral Services at 11.30am. This included the Society’s Daimlers, Jaguars, as well as a horse drawn carriage with white horses. The branch is run on a daily basis by Family Liaison Officer, Pam Goldberger who has been there since the start. Prior to Clare Road, the Society had a funeral home at Bradford Street which Pam first joined in 1990.

Family Liaison Officer Pam Goldberger.

We have quite a track record for providing excellent customer service and since 2003 have won 9 local business awards including 2 countywide. One of the main reasons for winning these awards is down to our very successful free Bereavement and Aftercare Support Groups.

Join us at our free BRAINTREE BEREAVEMENT & AFTERCARE SUPPORT GROUP CHRIST CHURCH London Road, Braintree, Essex
